WHY

Agents. Authors. Publishing pros. As always, the centerpiece of our annual conference is one-on-one pitch sessions with literary agents from across the country, and this year is no exception! (Check back soon for a list of participating agents.)                                                

Expert sessions on the craft of writing and paths to publishing. From writing historical fiction to the business of writing and more, our sessions are designed to support your literary endeavors! (Details about panels and speakers coming soon.)

A chance to make your publishing dream a reality during this time when so many things have been canceled, postponed, or rendered unrecognizable!

REGISTRATION IS LIMITED!

To maintain some social distancing, we are limiting registration to 150 attendees. Registration closes April 22, 2022, or sooner depending on capacity.

$349 (includes three agent-pitch sessions). Early bird special: Register by December 31, 2021, and received four agent pitches. Click HERE to register.

REFUND POLICY

We guarantee a full refund until April 15, 2022. No refunds after that date.

CONTINGENCY PLAN

We reserve the right to shift to an all-virtual conference if the ongoing pandemic requires it. In that event, agent-pitch sessions will be conducted via Zoom (we’ve done it before and promise it works).

SAFETY PROTOCOLS           

Proof of vaccination against covid-19 is required. Additionally, we will follow all masking and social-distancing requirements of the state and local government, as well as of the Marriott Corporation.
